RIO GRANDE, P.R.

The No. 24-ranked Buccaneers, one of six teams ranked in the Top 25 to be participating in the event, were led by sophomore Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England), who posted a first round score of 1-under-par 71 to finish tied for 13th on the individual leaderboard. Enoch is four strokes back of individual leaders Darren Blair of N.C. State and Dylan Fritelli of Texas.

 

As a team, the Bucs finished at 9-over-par 297, while No. 13-ranked Georgia Tech leads the event with an 8-under 280 team score.
